Messingham Primary School’s Reading Reward

Each school term children will have the chance to earn a reading reward for completing some extra reading tasks at home. We hope that this will encourage children to enjoy reading.

The reading reward will include a special mention in collective worship where they will be presented with a school bookmark, designed by the children, as well as having their name/ photograph displayed in the school library for the duration of the following school term.

There is a list of activities for children to complete in order to achieve the reading reward. They must complete all activities on the list below to achieve it.

Children must complete the following list of activities to achieve the reward:
